I have one request:

This is the desktop thread. I have nothing against seeing all these Windows 8 start screens but in all seriousness, it doesnt matter what you change, they are going to look the same except for the wallpaper.

Can we keep on topic and post actual desktops? Without the start screen? Maybe start a new thread with the same Windows 8 start screens?

The Start Screen can be considered a desktop in the sense it is used for Metro apps, very much like the classic desktop is used for classic apps.

I disagree. Most users are staying on the desktop still it seems. So MS got rid of the start menu since no one used it and stayed on the desktop. Things have not changed much in regards to desktop users, staying on a desktop. Go figure.

At least post your desktop as well... I know it's been said before but I'll chip in my 2 pence. It's a desktop thread, not a Start Screen thread. I have no issue with people showing their Start Screen (which IMO, some look nice) but at least show your desktop as well! :)

Yes, and moderators have told people in the past to post their Start Screen in this thread. People are going to have to accept now that you WILL get posts of both Start Screen and Desktop or one or the other. It's bad enough having repeated requests for wallpapers because people don't follow the guide in the Opening Post without having repeated moans because you don't like Start Screens.
